Based in Frankfurt, this logistics solution provider was started as an internal project within the global Lufthansa Aviation Group.

In a recent social media post, the company's managing directors Boris Hueske and Nikola Todic shared a joint statement praising the team and support from customers, Frankfurt Airport and Lufthansa Cargo Group. "heyworld accomplished a significant milestone by successfully handling 100,000 daily import and export parcels in our Frankfurt e-commerce hub. This achievement demonstrates the exceptional capabilities of managing cross-border e-commerce shipments and the unwavering commitment to transforming Frankfurt into a flourishing e-commerce hub and a retailer's gateway to Europe. We have achieved our goal by the power of teamwork!"
